What is Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery for Men?
Male blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery for men, is a commonly performed procedure that eliminates excess sagging skin and fatty tissue around the upper and lower eyelids and surrounding areas, rejuvenating the eye area and upper facial region.
How can Male Eyelid Surgery improve my appearance?
Eyelid surgery can make a man look more alert, younger, and less tired by trimming away excess sagging skin around the eyes that makes you look aged and tired. Eyelid surgery effectively eliminates the following conditions:
- Loose, sagging skin around the brows and upper eyelids
- Wrinkles, creases and sagging skin around the corners of the eyes
- Puffiness, bags, and dark spots beneath the lower eyelids
- Excess sagging skin around the lower eyelids
Am I a good candidate for Male Eyelid Surgery?
As with any plastic surgery, candidates should be in overall good health and have no pre-existing eye conditions or allergies that would affect the healing process. Blepharoplasty is normally recommended for patients aged 35 years or older but may be performed on individuals of any age. You may need to suspend certain medications in preparation for plastic surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Decorato will assess your personal medical history and concerns, as well as your aesthetic goals, and help you determine whether eyelid surgery may be right for you.
What happens during Male Eyelid Surgery?
Dr. Decorato will create a tiny incision camouflaged just beneath the lower eyelashes or in the natural fold of the upper eyelid. This incision is used to eliminate excess skin and fatty tissue, diminishing puffiness and producing a taut, contoured appearance. In some patients, fat may be transferred from one area to other areas of the eyelid to create a more defined contour. Sutures are then closed, and the eyes are bandaged following the procedure.
Recovery after Male Eyelid Surgery
Recovery from eyelid surgery may take several weeks. In the first week, you must make sure that your eyes get plenty of rest, and your face will be wrapped in a compression bandage that helps to support delicate tissue. After a week, the stitches will be removed. Soreness, redness, and swelling may linger for several weeks, but these symptoms will naturally subside over time.
How Much Does Male Eyelid Surgery Cost in Staten Island?
The cost of eyelid surgery typically varies between patients, depending on the complexity and duration of the surgery. Most insurance carriers do not typically cover this or other elective procedures, except in cases where excess skin obstructs a patient’s vision. To manage non-covered expenses, Dr. Decorato’s office provides easy financing (LINK) options and accepts payments in cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
